O Heaven, be struck with horror; earth be plunged
in chaos;
Do not dare, Sun, to behold
Your master on the cross, hanging there of his
own will,
Let rock be shattered, for the rock of life is now
wounded by nails...
In fact, let all creation shudder and groan at the passion
of the Creator.

Adam alone exults.



-Romanos
(sixth century)
